Whoa!! Just picked this baby up at BB three days ago. The answer to my 2 channel quest! Had been running the Yamaha 663, but just wasnt happy how it processed 2 channel listening, loved it for HT. Got a great deal i thought at BB, retailing at $1699, i was able to haggle the price down to $1400, including a 4 year warranty. Pretty happy with that. But with all the audio options this thing offer's, i have never been more pleased for 2 channel, also hooked up to the Xpa-3, THIS THING ROCK'S.:D Still trying to fine tune, any "make sure's" i should do? I know i have the manual, the volume of info is quite frankly, "overwhelming". Appreciate any insider info from forum members on audio/video features. Thanks in advance.
